THDA 268 - Rights and Resistance: Theatre and Film in Latin America

Cross-Listed as  
This course offers an introduction to negotiations between art and the state in Latin American theatre and film texts and performances that expressly illuminate cultural and political movements in the Americas during the 20th century. We study the ways in which theatre and film address and express crisis of social conflict. Drawing on post-colonial and liberation theories of culture, art, and the state, we construct an intellectual history of socially motivated Latin American performances. (4 Credits)
